How a birthday gift from God brought us together – Modupe and Opeyemi

.Loving someone isn’t just about saying it everyday, it’s about showing it in every way.

Ope Ajayi and Modupe are such an interesting couple.

What’s even more beautiful is their traditional inspired engagement photoshoot…so adorable!

Our Love story (as told by Modupe):

I met Ope Ajayi in School and that was at a time when my heart was broken, battered and smashed. I had been holding on to myself since my last break up because I was afraid to fall in love again. When it was a month to my birthday, I asked God for a birthday gift.

My life’s biggest security is in knowing that you will always be there to love me back no matter what.
If my life were a business, entering into an unconditional and irrevocable partnership with you has been the most profitable decision ever. I love you.
My life’s biggest achievement is that I get to be with an awesome man like you every day.
I could easily say that I love you to death, but I really want to live forever to love you eternally.

Although, I was not asking for a guy in particular, but I told to give me something awesome and God surely did because he brought Ope to me. One of my Pastors christened him Öreoluwa” meaning God’s gift and indeed he is a beautiful gift from God that I will always appreciate.

Every day of my life is perfect because it starts and ends with loving you.
All the ladies in this world should learn a thing or two, about being a perfect bae from you.
Your love is… sweet and exciting, heartwarming and tingling, passionate and sensational, protective and inspirational, warm and funny, cute and cozy, hot and luscious, charming and delicious.
The woman who said that all men are the same, obviously never met a man as handsome and loving as you are.

I met him through a friend and we exchanged pin and started chatting till we got so used to each other. Ope completely swept me off my feet because I kept on thinking about him all day. he was just the man that i had hoped for. God has a way of healing wounds and HE definitely healed mine. It had been 3 wonderful years with Ope and would definitely pray for more years with him, he proposed last year and of course, I said a big yes!

I always hear people asking God for a chance to do things over. It confused me until I realized that they must not have found a soulmate like you
All that I love is you. I love who you are and our life together. I live life entirely for loving you.
When life seems to suffocate with problems and issues, you are like a gasp of fresh air. Your love revives me and keeps me strong.

Our Love story (as told by Opeyemi)
It all started 3 years ago, when my friend jokingly told me to leave the singles market and become a real man, i told her i had not found my significant other yet and she said she could introduce me to one of her friends that would perfectly fit me.

The most precious moments of my life are when I am held in your arms
Even though I have seen a million people today, the only person that I can think about is you.
You are the love of my life, and the light of my day. I will love you forever.

To cut the long story, she introduced me to Modupe, who was in her final year as a dental student then. We exchanged our BBM pin and got chatting. She is funny and col to chat with. I was already so into her and I never knew. I would practically stay glued to my phone to chat and talk all day. A few years later, I asked her out officially to be my woman, and thus we began our journey of love.

My life with you is something that I would never trade, even for all of the riches under Heaven.
I give you my heart with full intention, gratefully knowing that my life will never be the same, but much better.

Everything you do is a source of joy for me. I can never be sad when I’m around you.

You are my Adam, and you are my Eve
Loving you is amazing, but the fact that you love me is a miracle
The best part of my life is when you look me in the eyes. It makes me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world
Some couples boast about being exactly the same. I am happy that we have differences because these variations make us complete each other perfectly.

Our proposal story (as told by Ope)

proposal, after her house job in LUTH as a dentist whilst preparing for her NYSC programme, I felt it was the right time to take the bold step.

When I miss you, I re-read all our old conversations and smile like a fish
Someone up there must be watching out for me, because they sent Heaven’s most beautiful angel into my life.

My gratitude for having met you is surpassed only by my amazement at the joy you bring to my life
Can anything be more valuable than our love? Since you are with me, my only measurement is in heartbeats.

So, I told her I would love to take her out for a boat cruise and that she was free to invite her friends, unknown to her that I already informed them about my plan. I remembered I was a little bit tensed because I did not want her to find out about my plan.

Every time I look into your eyes, I see a beautiful, radiant, magical, perfect and colorful future.
If you were a tree, I’d be a vine. If you were a beach, I’d become the river. If you are a bee, then I will be the flower. Everything I do is so that I can be in your arms again.
Growing old used to scare me. Now, I do not fear old age because I will get to spend it with you
I don’t have much to give you. I’m not a rich man. What I can promise is that everything I do will be for you, always

We set out for the cruise and before she knew what was happening, I was on my knee right in the middle of the lake, and I popped the Question. She was so shocked and surprise, but of course, she said yes and i felt like the happiest man on earth. She is the love of my life.

Times are hard, but sharing them with you makes everything easier. The most difficult of burdens are made simple when I am with you
I wake up every morning with the excitement of a child on Christmas Day, just knowing that I’m with you.
Before you, I never believed in forever. Now, I know that is not long enough to spend with you.
